There is a newer version of this item:
Designed to feel as light as paper, Kindle Oasis is over 20% lighter and 30% thinner on average than any other Kindle. The handgrip tapers to an ultra-thin 3.4 mm display so you can read comfortably for hours.
Kindle Oasis combines our strongest cover glass and a featherweight frame infused with metal using structural electroplating, ensuring it is lightweight while also resilient enough to take it with you everywhere you go.
A tapered ergonomic handgrip shifts the centre of gravity to your palm, to rest in your hand like the spine of a book. Perfectly balanced for one-handed reading, Kindle Oasis lets you lose yourself in your story.
Comfortably turn the page with either the touch display or dedicated page turn buttons located on the front of the handgrip. Whether you choose to read with your left or right hand, Kindle Oasis automatically rotates the page orientation to match.
Highest-resolution Kindle with enhanced lighting
Kindle Oasis features a high-resolution 300 ppi display for crisp text, which reads like the printed page, on the same 6” display size as Kindle Voyage. A redesigned built-in light features 60% more LEDs than any other Kindle, increasing the consistency and range of screen brightness for improved reading in all types of lighting. Kindle Oasis guides light towards the surface of the display with its built-in front light—unlike back-lit tablets that shine in your eyes—so you can read comfortably for hours without eye strain.
Dual-battery charging system provides the longest battery life of any Kindle
Charge the device and cover simultaneously while joined together and plugged in. When on the go, the cover will recharge the device automatically, giving you months of combined battery life. Plus, a new hibernation mode minimises power consumption when your Kindle is inactive, extending battery life to its fullest capacity.
Premium leather cover
The removable charging cover is made of high-quality leather and comes in your choice of black, merlot or walnut. The cover opens like a book and fits closely around the bezel, waking Kindle Oasis when opened and putting it to sleep when closed. Twelve magnets form a secure and solid attachment between device and cover, while still easy to detach when the lightest possible weight is desired.

What made it even worse was after me attempting to call up and get a refund the phone support was very unhelpful to the point they said my details were incorrect and the person on the line was not listening to anything I was saying where I had to repeat myself constantly.
Dreadful product and customer support was terrible.
Update after 2 months using the Oasis. I'm pleased to say the reduced size and weight makes this worth the price. My only criticism which is why I have taken one star off is that out of it's cover the kindle Oasis has a very smooth plastic casing which makes it all too easy to fall through my hands while reading in bed.
So much lighter than any other kindle to date. You can comfortably hold it out of the case for hours. Switching from hand to hand every so often, it will auto rotate, which is very useful.
The wider edge is a more natural way to hold a reader, I think. Previously I would cradle the kindle in two hands to avoid pressing the screen. I think this either better.
Only issue I had was that the battery (unit and case) were flat in a week. Pretty disappointing considering amazon boast 'months' in the product review, and much shorter than the voyage or pw. Updated the firmware, and things are going a lot better.
I can't compare it to other models as I haven't used any, however it could be improved by having an automatic brightness adjuster to the screen. Also by being able to change the battery cover separately.
Biggest complaint is the ridiculous over claim of battery life. I fully charged the case and kindle and took it away for one week's holiday. I read two books over the 7 days and both cover and kindle battery were dead before I'd finished the 2nd book. One week is the claim that should be made. Anything else is dishonest.
That's why it looses a star. It's also quite expensive but I hope it will last.
A major drawback is the lack of any dedicated travel cases atm but I guess I can repurpose something like a CD carry case as it will fit not like the older ones.
Im pleased I did though, its an excellent product and a joy to use. Its noticeably smaller than my previous Kindle meaning you can fit it into just about any pocket and with the cover removed is very light too. Much easier to use with one hand and the backlight is excellent.
Homepage layout is much improved on older models and battery life is very good although I think "months" might only be if you dont actually use it .........!
Only slight niggles are that the Kindle claims the cover is loose when it isnt and I had to do a hard reset when it stopped working after a couple of weeks but on balance I think its a great product, would be 5 starts but for the price.
